“cool little island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is a great little walk - it is not difficult and takes about 30 min if not too many stops. Bring water if it is hot as you cant buy any along the way.

“Seaside stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I took a (mild) walk along the Dongbaek island esplanade and I was blown away by the view/scenery! There are several places where you can stop and rest and just take in the view and the fresh air while sitting down or standing. At the end of esplanade you'll come up on Nurimaru APEC house with Gwangalli beach and Gwangan Bridge, also know as Diamond Bridge, in the background. It's a postcard perfect view!

“Nice park-style island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

It's worth a walk when you are in Haeundae Area in Busan. Actually it's a nice park. Inside you have a small hall where the ASEM or the APEC meeting was hosted.
